The International Harp Archives at Brigham Young University

This selection of harp scores from the International Harp Archives at Brigham Young University includes items from the 18th century through the early 20th century. Most of the selections are works for solo harp but other duets and small chambers works are included, especial early 19th-century duets for harp and piano. Many of the composers represented in the collection are harpist-composers from the 19th century including François Joseph Naderman, Charles Oberthür, Alphonse Hasselmans, François-Joseph Dizi, Robert Bochsa, Jean Baur, Philippe Joseph Hinner, Sophia Dussek, Jean-Baptiste Cardon, Johann Baptist Krumpholtz, François Corbelin and Elias Parish-Alvars. Original compositions, arrangements of popular opera arias, exercises and methods are all included.

The collection includes both manuscripts and printed editions. Many of the rare editions were donated by prominent members of the American Harp Society and World Harp Congress as well as independent artist and collectors including Victor Salvi, Catherine Michel, and John Marson. A major purchase of both manuscripts and rare editions from the collection of Marie-Louis-Fidèle Baronne de Talleyrand-Perigord is also represented in this digital collection. In addition to the obvious value to harpists, the collection is valuable to music historians interested in the history of music publishing and the dissemination of commercial manuscripts.
